$1.35M for Plaintiff with Fractures from Ladder Fall

McNicholas & McNicholas secured a $1.35 million settlement for an industrial air conditioning technician who fell approximately 16 feet while climbing a ladder to access the roof of a building. The plaintiff suffered multiple fractures requiring surgery and extensive rehabilitation. Not only had the ladder been improperly designed, but the contractor and building owner had incorrectly installed it and failed to inspect it for building code violations and defects.
